| **Find the area of each site if the area of the first site is 5 times the area of the second, and the area of the second is 252 hectares less than the area of the first.**

Let the area of the second section be equal to x, then since the area of the first section is 5 times the area of the second section, the area of the first section is 5x. Since the area of the second site is 252 hectares less than the area of the first site, the area of the first site is equal to x + 252. Let’s make the equation: 5x = x + 252. To solve the equation, we will transfer to the left side of x: 5x – x = 252, 4x = 252, x = 252: 4, x = 63 ha. The area of the second site is 63 hectares, then the area of the first site is: 5 * 63 hectares = 315 hectares.
